Knights rally past Spartans in Super Bowl rematch

Layton showed that his throwing arm is just as lethal as his feet when the junior quarterback connected with Ross Batty for a 19-yard gain on fourth down after being chased well into the backfield. On the next play, Vuillaume found a hole and took it 48 yards for the go-ahead touchdown with 3:03 left. The two-point attempt failed, making it 25-20.

Lansingburgh scored the game-winning touchdown on its next drive after a nine-play, 59-yard series culminated in an 8-yard run by Youngs. McGirt ran in the two-point attempt to make it 28-25 with 49.8 seconds left.

On the game's final drive, the Spartans, trying to get the go ahead touchdown were given an extra opportunity when a Lansingurgh defender was called for pass interference with 8.3 seconds left. On the next play, though, Matt Harte intercepted Layton in the end zone to seal the Knights' victory."
